The International VLBI Technology is held 9-11 October 2017 at INAF in Bologna/Italy. This Workshop is considered one of the most important meetings among members of the technology staff of EVN and IVS institutes and of the East-Asian VLBI infrastructures.
It is an advanced workshop, aimed at sharing technical knowledge across disciplines, including hardware and software engineering with the participation of both scientific and technical staff.
It covers many technical developments and improvements in capabilities on other radio astronomy facilities. It includes staff members who have worked on some of the most complex observational programs but who are also directly involved in supporting inexperienced users. Open discussions are foreseen about the possible implementation of the most recent developments in most of the RadioNet TNA facilities. Engineers and scientists of the less experienced institutes may learn a lot and on this event, one can easily face the state-of-the-art developments in interferometric observations and data analysis.
The workshop is also specifically designed to bring the work and results of developments within the RadioNet institutes and facilities to the attention of the broader engineering community.
